Do you you know if I need special adapter for the HALKEY ROBERTS valves, or as long as hose fits I'll be fine?
I think it depends on the pump.
I'm using a Bravo 12BST, and I had to use a modified adaptor (details below).
H-R valves have a "push-to-open" center pin, and if the pump has a shutoff, it will detect the pressure needed to blow the valves open as the inflation pressure, and shut off prematurely (or not start at all.)
The H-R adaptors aren't a lot of money (I think the one I ordered was around $8 US), but they can be tough to find. They are handy as they hold the hose to the valve in a very secure, and airtight manner. You may , however, need to modify it with a piece of wire across the adaptor to hold the pin open. On mine, removing the rubber sealing washer and placing the pin nearly at the shoulder worked well.
